To judge Investment Centers we have 2 methods: o ROI (return on investment) = Profit Margin X Asset Turnover   Profit Margin = Net Income/ Sales Asset T/O = Sales/Average Operating Assets Operating assets are assets that are  used in the daily core  business  of the company such as cash, PPE etc. The company will have a minimum ROI that they look for from  investments and if ROI is below, performance is not good or a  project will be rejected while an ROI above will be accepted.  The  flaw with this, I THINK, is that what might appear bad for one  manager’s division might be turned down when in fact it is good  for the company overall or a good project could be passed over

EXAMPLE: same information as example above. Chapter 10 Examples...
